We’ve screwed up talking about ADHD.
It’s easy to attach your worth to your accomplishments, behaviors, and status. It makes sense, doesn’t it? That’s how we value everything. If something performs well, like an iPhone, then it’s worth a whopping $700. We tend to do that with people, too. If you see someone not “performing” well in their schooling, then it’s easy to label them as stupid, immature, or worthless. Adults and children with ADHD endure the pangs of unreachable standards everyday of their lives.
